An oncoming deal between the United Arab Emirates to purchase a couple of intelligence satellites from France worth $930 million seems to be in trouble after the National Security Agency tried to put backdoors into the technology. Two military observation satellites contained a couple of specific US-supplied components providing backdoors to the highly secure information transmitted to the ground station.
The Arabs have asked the French to come up with some components that won’t leak their plans to the US, saying that they would rather prefer Russian or Chinese firms to take over the project. Actually, only the US believes that Chinese and Russians are spying on people.
So, the United Arab Emirates is ready to scrap the whole deal. Apparently, the country is hugely miffed that it bought French and found itself spied on by the US. In reality, the French only won the deal because the American State Department had been such an arse about how the system could be used.
In the meantime, the UAE likes Russian technology a lot - for example, it used the GLONASS space-based navigation system fitted as a redundancy feature on a Western European weapon system. As for France, defence experts can’t find out why the French were using the American technology in the first place.
Media reports say that France operates the Pleiades spy satellite in a kind of a critical piece of the country's sovereignty. Taking into account that core competence, it seemed weird that France would use American technology, though there’s an agreement between Paris and Washington over transfer of capabilities.
Finally, the deal is also problematic because Israel may want to limit the ability of the system to work. The matter is that the French satellites sold to the Arabs, a very high optical resolution and encrypted code may be used to guide a cruise missile to a target in Iran.

|Such fears are redundant as the Americans since December can use the skynet 5D military satellite to guide any missiles it wants to and or monitor any air or ground based comms it chooses to,5a,5b and 5c have been up over England and Europe for some years already and leased to the Americans by the M.O.D.|
What is troubling is the timing of the satellites launch when we expect that hostilities in the gulf may ease up or abate the USA through it English partnerships has use of a satellite which is designed with one purpose by the MOD and that is for comms in a theatre of war scenario and intelligence gathering.

|Security obsessed really? Tell that to the families of the victims of the bombing of the Federal building in Oklahoma, or the families that loved ones on the plane that went down over Lockerbie(sic)Scotland. The families of those injured and murdered on 9-11. There are many more victims who were murdered by domestic terrorists and more often than not Bin-laden and his band of gutless terrorists. I don't cherish the fact that the NSA is probably reading these type of sites and listening into phone calls. But if saves even one American life it is worth it, Hi Sweetie don't forget milk on your way home etc.is what they would hear on my phone. Thanks for the read Sam.|

|"USA security obsession" USA have many wars around world and next of USA it Cuba with old nuclear missiles point USA. if rocket combustible it more cheap with Russia UAE can see price difference if you math fuel per tons to lift any commercial or private rocket at orbit with any colocations system to be work right. intelligence can be invisible ever up high any army sky satellite locator too. maybe price it not right for satellite of intelligence and it just for protect land of rocket enemies.|
